    Windows update assistant downloading older build!


    Hello, i have windows 10 build 1903 installed and I want to upgrade to version 2004, so I installed Windows 10 Update Assistant (latest version) and started downloading the new version but I checked the location where it's downloading the .esd file and the name of the file says the build is 19041.264 although the latest build as of making this post is 19041.388, is it supposed to download an older build for stability reasons? Is it normal?

    :)

    Windows 10 media creation tool downloaded an older build

    Thank you for replying so quickly.

    I downloaded the Windows 10 media Creation Tool from the link that you posted and it is the same as what I used before. Both are named as follows:

    MediaCreationTool1809.exe



    Both also show the same build number you listed. 10.0.17763.1.

    The build of the Install.esd file that was created is 10.0.17134.1. which is build 1804 and not 1809

    I have a very basic setup with a 4th gen I7 so it is an older system that has been around for a while and shouldn't have any issues accepting the 1809 update.

    I couldn't get that update to install which is part of the reason for doing a clean install. It would never show up in my updates even using the update assistant. I just don't want to go through all of this just to
    have the same exact problem and still not be able to update to 1809.

    Windows 10 forced download

    ^This, then reboot and go to manually update windows. Find KB3035583 in the list of available updates, right-click and "Hide this update" so it doesn't get installed again next go around.
